Wil Wheaton is bad ass!

Would you listen to If Ever They Happened Upon My Lair again? Why?

Wil Wheaton does an awesome job of "getting into" the characters in this short story!

Not impressed

This is a handful of generic fantasy tropes wrapped up into an hour and a half of mediocre prose, uninspired characters and cringe worthy dialogue. Have no idea why this was so highly rated. On the plus side, Wil Wheaton is a great reader.

Definitely NOT worth a whole credit.

Salvatore combined with Wheaton It Fantastic

A fun short story with excellent narration

Occasionally I like to break up my longer novels with short stories or adapted versions. I decided to give this a go and I was not dissatisfied. It works because it gets straight to the action, the limited amount of characters to remember, and the amazing performance of the great Wil Wheaton. You won't be disappointed if you are into this genre.

Loved the Stories!!

The narration was amazing. I may be biased since I'm completely a huge Wil Wheaton fan but the story was awesome as well. Highly recommend.

Great short story

Another great story by R. A. Salvatore. This story gives some background information on Vaasa and the Bloodstone Lands where the characters Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle have some wonderful adventures.

Definitely worth the listen. Dragons abounds in this adventure. And a plot extension to the other books.

Fantasy Books are better with Wil Wheaton

I love the Fantasy culture but am always hesitant to commit to diving in. Wil Wheaton made this a no brainer. The story is fantastic provided you have at least some background in the fantasy world of dragons and magic. I haven't listened or read any other books in this series but felt right at home with this story.
